    C2004 recommended downloads / patches???

    not sure if this posted last time 'round so I'll try again.........

    I'm hoping to get a copy of C2004 shortly & I'm aware that there are some bugs etc.............

    can anyone help recommending the better patches to fix these (if any).....

    also any help re downloads for improved AI, gameplay, player & game / pitch / weather editors etc.............

    This game could be awesome, but there are some glaring issues with it which means my copy is now up for sale :!( I payed an absolute shedload in getting it from New Zealand... And am bitterly disappointed that EA could put their good name to something that has blatently not been tested at all...

    I recommend going to www.planetcricket.net and downloading...

    1/ The lineup editor (fixes lineup bug and is a nice utility)

    2/ SavTweak 2.0 (means you can change your controller around and play as both teams...


    Unfortunatly two of the worst bugs, the AI's inability to play decent spin bowling (Boje and Vettori both pick up 8 for nothing on hard) and the AI run out bug which means most players run themselves out stupidly all the time have not been ironed out... And im not sure if they will be...

    Such a pity, because apart from those two bugs it is an impressive game....

    there are at least 3 sites for C2004 that I know of & I believe there are some recent patches that address the AI issues that Langeveldt has experienced...........

    If we can crack the fields we may be able to. They're pretty much the same as for cricket2002 but changing the positions in the .gob through hex editing doesn't seem to have any effect ingame.

    The cpu playing spin bowling is easily fixed using the stroke editor (from www.planetcricket.net). The bat pad (spin) stroke file needs adjusting to prevent each shot popping up miles in the air as is the case with the default settings

    The run out bug...well sam reckons he can disable it (cpu run outs) altogether though the exe he has currently released doesn't seem to work

    go to cricketcentral.tk, download Radagas patch, but it is very very hard. it makes the game more realistic however

    www.cricket2004.co.uk doesn't work anymore, apparently the account may be suspended????

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
